Mexico and France have mandated that their men's teams start women's teams. Several, if not most, of the Mexicans on the field are professionals. Several, including their star, Haitians are professionals in France. None of the US players are professional. Many of the CONCACAF teams also have NCAA players, which is where all our U20 players are. They are catching up and passing us just like in the Men's game about 10 years ago when the NCAA no longer was a comparable path of development to pro set ups for 16-19 year olds. Much less 22 year olds.
